France defender Benjamin Mendy is confident his injury problems are behind him after returning to the Manchester City team in Saturday's 1-0 FA Cup semi-final victory over Brighton and Hove Albion.

The 24-year-old defender has made just nine Premier League appearances while struggling with knee injuries this season but he completed 79 minutes at Wembley as Pep Guardiola's men kept their hopes of a historic quadruple alive.

France international Mendy gave a positive assessment of his condition after the game and said he is ready to help City finish the season on a high.

"When I came back [previously] sometimes the swelling stayed," Mendy told reporters. "But now it's good, we can forget the past and think about the future. I feel really fit and I want to give everything I can to help my team.

"I have missed a lot of games but my team-mates have been incredible so we need to trust and to believe we can go on and end up with a lot of trophies."


City travel to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for their Champions League quarter-final first leg against Spurs on Tuesday evening, before resuming their Premier League title charge at Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Mendy professional honours include World Cup, Premier League, Ligue 1 and EFL Cup winners' medals.
